When mankind sees, at last, the folly of its present fascination with
violence and war, and discards the means to carry out its acts of
violence, it will undergo a remarkable transformation. The first signs
of this most welcome change in human behaviour can be seen in the
millions who now march denouncing war and calling for justice and peace.
These demonstrations, spontaneous and worldwide, are a sure indication
that mankind is ready to renounce the past, and, when properly led, to
change direction. This time is fast approaching.
Amid the trauma and stressful conditions of the present, a new vision of
the future is presenting itself to the hearts and minds of millions who,
to a greater or lesser degree, respond. Men are awakening to the
necessity of peace if mankind is to survive. Few there are who doubt
this in their hearts, however much they may be embroiled in war. The
stage thus is set for the ultimate choice before mankind.
To the average onlooker, the world is torn and dominated by those who do
not share the vision of peace, who see only opportunities for wealth and
power in every conflagration. While these are many, the majority of men
are tired of the uselessness of war, and seek strategies to put an end
to such folly for ever. In their hearts burns the hope of a new time of
peace and progress for all. These people, in every country, represent
the hope of the world.
It is to them that Maitreya will address Himself on His emergence. It is
to them that He presents the vision of the future, even now. They, in
their many millions, will quickly respond to His advocacy, and set
alight the hope of all.
Thus will Maitreya persuade men that further reckless strife is useless
and dangerous. That the problems of today are global and cannot be
solved by war. That co-operation alone will bring men peace and plenty.
That only as brothers, hand in hand, can they enter the new world which
awaits their care.
Thus will men decide, and turn back from the abyss. Thus will they
demonstrate their choice for life and happiness, and, eyes alight with
hope, begin together the task of reconstructing this world.
The time of decision is nigh, almost upon us. Maitreya is ready, eager
to show the way, point the new direction. Millions await His counsel and
inspiration, wisdom and love. Maitreya will vouchsafe the future for
